Burnham's annual family fun day at Manor Gardens saw numerous stalls and fun attractions pack the town's lawns.

The event raised cash for several groups and charities, including Burnham Moose Club, Burnham Rotary Club, Somerset Time For Youth, and many more besides.

The day featured a slew of activities for visitors to enjoy, including a human fruit machine created by the Hillview Junior Carnival Club, a display of model steam engines from the West Huntspill Engineering Society, and a tombola raising cash for Burnham and District Lions.

There were also performances and displays throughout the day from local groups including medieval battle reenactments, martial arts displays, as well as music from a ukelele orchestra, and an African drum group on the bandstand.
